October POWerful Word – RESPECT – Week 4

We all have people who we look up to and admire. We respect them because of who they are and what they do. Who are some people you’ve read about or heard about who you admire and respect– and what makes you respect them so much (i.e. world leaders, famous athletes)? There are also people in our immediate community who we respect. Who do you respect? Do you have some key adults or mentors in your life who you really respect and admire? Who here has a favorite teacher, coach or family member who helps you when you have problems or questions? (Share YOUR childhood mentor and why you respect that person). Finish this sentence: “I respect (this person) because s/he ________.” Now complete this sentence: “I show respect for (this person) by ________________. We respect people for who they are and what they do.

If you have time: Why might we lose respect for someone (i.e. they are rude/aren’t accountable, they make poor choices)? Has this happened to you?
